01 Our Brand Philosophy

The California Arts &
Recreation Board

California Arts™ was founded on the
recognition that good design is
inaccessible for the average American.
Today, contemporary menswear is
produced by mall brands who release
un-inspired styles or by luxury fashion
houses at ultra-high, exclusive prices.

We pursue the mission of releasing
beautiful design from exclusive pricing
and unsustainable production so we
can all enjoy the luxury of art that
inspires our everyday.

Live creatively.
Foster the deeper connections.

02 Our Production Philosophy

California Minimalism:
Accessible design by producing less &
building better.

West Coast Minimalism

Capturing the laid-back, effortless cool of
California. Inspired by the past, made for living
in the present. The result is a new era of
timeless American sportswear that endures
season after season.

Modular Minimalism

We believe that the simplest things are the most
complex. We take the time to re-imagine one
piece at a time, creating less but better modular
staples. By avoiding multi-piece collections and
seasonal fashion calendars, we minimize excess
inventory and trend-based waste.

Sustainable Minimalism

We are critical with our textile choices,
favouring natural and biodegradable materials
over micro-plastic blends. From the lining to
the exteriors, we find creative ways to use and
reuse fabrics and scraps. Our goal is to
transition to 100% organic certified cotton and
plant-based vegan leathers by 2025
without compromising accessibility.

03 Founder Notes

I believe that the people and the things we
surround ourselves with have the power to
influence the way we nagvigate everyday life.
Whether that's unconventional thinking, a
pursuit of personal passions or a life of
meaning. For me, it was a release from a
corporate 9-5 to build a brand that has
renewed my sense of purpose.

But I've always wondered why good design
was made at price points so few American
could afford. I created California Arts™
to release forward thinking design from
inaccessible price points so we can all
realize its benefit in our everyday.

With gratitude & a full heart,

You can always reach me directly.
